Regis Corp. Selects Stellent Universal Content Management for Intranet

Jan 30, 2004

Stellent, Inc., a provider of content management solutions, has announced that Regis Corporation, an owner, operator, and franchisor of hair and retail product salons, has selected Stellent Universal Content Management in an effort to develop a more sophisticated intranet. The Stellent system will replace Regis' current intranet, which requires a Web developer to manually add and update site content using HTML technology.

Stellent Content Management will enable both technical and non-technical employees to contribute content to the intranet, eliminating the bottleneck caused by having a single developer update all Web site content. The Stellent system also will allow Regis to personalize content for each of the intranet's 600 users, ensuring they only access information relevant to the country in which they work. After Regis implements its corporate intranet, various departments within the organization plan to use Stellent to create individual Web sites. For example, the marketing department intends to develop a site that allows U.S. and United Kingdom employees to share images via the Web rather than shipping them overnight. And Regis' finance department plans to deploy a site to support auditing and compliance activities, including those related to the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.

Stellent Universal Content Management provides a single product architecture offering Web content management, document management, collaboration, records management, and digital asset management functionalities. The system enables organizations within a range of industries to implement Web-based line-of-business initiatives, such as employee portals and partner extranets, as well as enterprise-wide initiatives that standardize content management for use by multiple sites and applications throughout an organization.
